Cannot ping DAG IP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a two node Exchange 2010 DAG.   

    One is active and sits in Site A and one is passive for replication purposes and sits in Site B.

    In Failover Cluster Manager, the DAG is set up with two IP addresses - one is online and one is offline.  

    Today I noticed that for some strange reason, the passive server at Site B cannot ping the current online DAG address at all.  But it can ping other physical hosts using the same subnet as the DAG address.  In fact nothing at Site B can ping the DAG address.  But they can ping everything else.  Everything at Site A is working perfectly.   There is nothing wrong with the routing, everything checks out.  Nothing is being blocked.

    Why is this happening?

  • Then something has to be wrong on the network configuration. Treat this as standard network troubleshooting and triple check everything.

  • Is this OS Windows 2008 R2?  If so look at the firewall fix that is in this post:

  • It is Windows 2008 R2 

    I just checked and it still says "Domain Network"

    Also Windows Firewall is not turned on at all.
